A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP7 week 7

There isnt much to mention this week.. its been pretty dull.

My WIP for the month, like I mentioned last week, is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. I was able to take a better picture. I need to get needles with a longer cord. These are 16 inches.

The mask is almost complete. About 20 more rows..lol 🙂

My FO’s were actually finished a few weeks ago….

I made an infinity scarf on my purple KK loom. Ive loved this yarn for so long. its by Fancy Yarns. I have no idea what the colorway is.

Below is the cowl I posted about last month for a WIP Wednesday.

And lastly, I frogged the Man hat. ugh!!! I got to the decrease and the hat was at a point where I could try it on. Too tight. It broke my heart to take it apart. Do I have any ambition to start over…. does not look good.  Although I love the yarn and the pattern, doing the knit rows hurt my thumb. Must be the thick yarn.

A Year of Projects, WIPS

YOP7 wk 6

I dont have a list for A Year of Projects. What I do have is a bundle I made on ravelry with projects I’d like to make.. someday. Also I’ve planned out 4 big quarterly projects. This quarter, July 1st to Sept 30 is the Princess Mononoke Pullover. Yes I started it in May but it is less than half done and it needs to get done.

This is the best photo I could post since I am in a middle of a row. This was a few months ago. I think I am close to half way done with the graph . When I take better pics I will talk about adjustments I want to make .18646026_1335903496495458_9118225529437159424_n

There is this group on ravelry that will be making the Sophie’s Universe blanket in October which is great since that is when I plan start my second big quarterly project… fate 🙂  And October is when I will have extra money from the Halloween orders from my etsy shop 🙂 🙂 Yup, I may have to buy more yarn for this project.

For my current WIPS , I am still working on the Man hat. I love how this yarn is knitting up. My YOP friend, Becki told me Saturate by Premier Yarns is discontinued. Which broke my heart 😦 I have one more skein of the color below ( agate) and  2 others (Zinna and Fluorite).  So I will be extra picky when it comes to projects for those.

And for another group (GEMS) I am making a crocodile scarf…. The CAL of the month is the Dragon/Crocodile/Alligator stitch. Where was this CAL when I made the Mermaid Cowl..lol This is the tail.

I could also finish the  crocodile fingerless gloves I started back in January.  We’ll see 🙂

WIP Wednesday 

I am sitting here with my favorite wip this week. I am so in love with this hat. The yarn, the pattern… ❤❤❤

The pattern is Man hat on ravelry. And the yarn is Saturate in agate by the Deborah Norville Collection.

I havent knitted a hat in a while and this pattern is perfect.

My other wip is a cowl because I haven’t  made enough in the past few weeks..lol

This yarn is sadly discontinued. I would of loved to buy other colorways. This one is mango and it’s by Red Heart. Pattern is Fandango Cowl, also on ravelry.

YOP7 week 4

I was going to do the A year of Projects posts every other week so I wasn’t in a rush to get something started or finished to show….. But I have to show off this amazing FO !!!!

Its called Mermaid’s Cowl. I really love this stitch. I used a g size hook instead of the H the pattern called for. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft: Pink Camo. I used all but a little ball of this yarn. Its also not as wide as the pattern. It covers the neck( my mannequin head has a longer neck than I do..lol) .

And for my WIP… Another crochet along by Chaos and Chop Suey.  This one is for Grease. One of my all time favorite movies.  Week one is Pink Ladies. I am at the decrease 🙂 I will finish the other half over the next few days so I do not fall behind 🙂

Work In Progress Wednesday!

I love when I have a WIP to show on Wednesday . 🙂 If you have read any of my A Year of Projects post from this  or last month,  you would know I am slashing my stash.  Too mush yarn for a little space.

Any way I have this ball of yarn from Red Heart called Artist Print. Its so beautiful. But I haven’t had any luck with finding the right project for it. A few days ago I decided it was time. Its a big ball.. a full skein I believe.  I looked on ravelry for the colorway to see what it looks up knitted and crocheted .

I found a project called Fifi scarf  .  I loved it and had to make one for myself. Its a knitted project. Perfect. I am a bit obsessed with knitting at the moment.

Its an easy pattern and with this yarn its working up beautifully. I am at the tricky part. I have to create the “loop” that the other side of the scarf will go through. Ive never had to divide my knitting  but it went pretty well. No dropped stitches 🙂 🙂

The picture above shows where I had to divide the stitches. 12 on each needle. I did the k1,p1 ribbing on one half of the stitches last night. Tonight I will cut the yarn and do the ribbing for the other 12 stitches.
